The Al-Nassr forward continues to enjoy his arrival in the Middle East following his record-breaking move to the Saudi giants
Al-Nassr striker Cristiano Ronaldo was handed a luxurious gift following his recent switch to the Saudi giants.
The 37-year-old completed a mega-money move to the Middle East last month before being officially unveiled in early January, in a move that will see him earn a staggering £173 million per year.
The Portuguese superstar was also gifted a one-off Jacob & Co watch to celebrate his move to Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo works with Jacob and Co and they have created a one-of-a-kind Caviar Flying Tourbillon “Tsavorites for him, featuring 338 ultra-rare gemstones.
Ronaldo’s new incredible timepiece pays tribute to his new home.
The green-coloured piece is the same colour of the Saudi flag, and a representation of Islam.

The watch is 18K white gold, 47mm x 15.85mm and is worth N567,000,000 (£630,000).
The watchmaker reportedly chose tsavorites rather than emeralds to obtain the green hue because they are 200 times rarer and 200 times less expensive than their cousins.
The watch’s 388 superb, baguette-cut tsavorites are set in the 47 mm 18k white gold case, bezel, face, and crown.
Although this might seem a bit over the top, the watch is given a beautiful, all-green appearance that is hard to forget.
Even though it is the only part of the watch not covered with stones, the strap is made of green alligator leather.
Ronaldo has already been seen rocking the incredible watch on his Instagram page following his arrival in Saudi Arabia.
For the benefit of Ronaldo’s fans, Jacob & Co. is selling a range of timepieces with Ronaldo-inspired designs.
The company debuted two watches at the end of the previous year: the rose gold Flight of CR7 and the stainless-steel Heart of CR7.
Each watch is only available in 99 pieces and comes in two versions, one with diamonds and the other without; the prices range from N25,891,120 ($34,988) to N134,184,940 ($181,331).
However, if you want a copy of Ronaldo’s exotic green wrist piece, you’re out of luck.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is the only recipient of the Caviar Flying Tourbillon “Tsavorite”.
Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr dumped out of 2022/23 Saudi Cup
The former Portugal international who has already made his debut for his new club was unable to help his side reach the finals of the 2022/23 Saudi Cup.
The Saudi league leaders were left trailing at half time at the break courtesy of strikes from Romarinho in the 15th minute, before Abderrazak Hamdallah doubled the host’s advantage in the 43rd minute.
However, Rudi Garcia’s half-time dressing room talk only inspired Al-Nassr to a 67th minute response by Anderson Talisca who brought the visitors back into contention as they desperately sought a comeback.
But their hopes were dashed as Romarinho found Muhannad Alshanqueeti in stoppage time to land the final blow and put the game beyond Al-Nassr’s reach as the hosts progressed to the finals of the Saudi Cup in what was Ronaldo’s first real setback since making his debut for his new club.
The Portuguese will return to action for the league leaders when they travel to play Al-Fateh on February 3 in the Saudi Pro League.
